Annual Network Operations Report 2017

28 March 2018

The Network Operations Report for 2017 is now available for stakeholder consultation and comment.

The European ATM network handled high levels of traffic in 2017. There were 10.6 million flights in the Network Manager’s (NM) area; this is an increase of 4.4% compared to 2016. The months of July, August and September had the highest monthly traffic ever recorded, with more than a million flights in each of these months.

Despite the high demand, en-route ATFM delay was just slightly higher than the previous year, at 0.88 minutes per flight. Airport ATFM delay decreased by 3.6% in 2017.
